The ultimate guide to vegan liquid lipsticks

I am a huge fan of lip colors of any kind, but lately, liquid lipsticks have really become my favorites. They last for a long time, and I like that many have a matte finish. I have quite many vegan liquid lipsticks in my makeup collection, and I wanted to share them with you and let you know what I think about each one. Most of them are organic, all are of course cruelty free and vegan. All brands are available internationally. I will be reviewing them with the help of 5 criteria, that I will scale from 1 (bad) to 5 (very good):

  • Consistency: how easy it is to apply based on the texture of the lipstick. If it´s too dry, thick or fine it will not apply properly.
  • Color tone: what I think about the color and how well it matches my expectations based on the color in the container.
  • Smell: how I like the smell.
  • Durability: how long it will last in a day, in regard to hours, eating, kissing etc.
  • Moisturizing effect: does it dry my lips or does it keep them feeling moisturized.

Aromi beauty

This brand has so many great makeup products, and everything is vegan!

Aromi liquid lipstick, “Toasted Almond”

This is a cold toned, soft pink-brown shade belonging to the nude tones. Depending on your natural lipcolor, I think it will look more pink or brown. Overall I like it – it´s very easy to apply, my lips don´t dry out, and the smell is somewhat reminding me of chocolate. It lasts well for hours, after eating I usually apply a thin new layer to fill in some missing spots.

  • Consistency: 5
  • Color tone: 4
  • Smell: 3
  • Durability: 3
  • Moisturizing effect: 3

Aromi liquid lipstick, “Electric orchid”

This is an intense pink with lots of pigmentation, and I love to use this in summer. It has similar qualities as the “Toasted Almond”, some differences in color tone, durability and smell though (the smell is a bit chemical-like).

  • Consistency: 5
  • Color tone: 5
  • Smell: 2
  • Durability: 5
  • Moisturizing effect: 3

Aromi liquid lipstick, “Rose gold”

A lovely pink color with golden shimmer in it. It is really great for summer, and not as intense as the ‘Electric orchid’. I find this color to be perfect for adding a luxurious look to your makeup. Match with golden jewelry and you´ll be ready for anything. The smell is sweet and the texture makes it easy to apply. Don´t miss my makeup post where I created a  summer makeup with this lipstick.

  • Consistency: 4
  • Color tone: 4
  • Smell: 4
  • Durability: 3
  • Moisturizing effect: 4

Zuii organic

Zuii organic has become one of my favorite makeup brands. Not all their products are vegan, but everything is organic and cruelty free.

Zuii organic Flora satin lip color, “Fresh”

This is one of few vegan liquid lipsticks from this brand. It has a lovely spring-summer color, smells sweet and fresh, and lasts for quite a few hours if you don´t eat anything. It´s a tiny bit too fine and wet for my taste, which makes it a little tricky to apply within the lines of the lips. On the other hand the moisturizing effect is pretty good.

  • Consistency: 3
  • Color tone: 5
  • Smell: 4
  • Durability: 2
  • Moisturizing effect: 4

Black moon cosmetics

This was actually my first ever conscious cruelty free buy. I found this brand by chance on Instagram, and I just really liked their style and the colors of their lipsticks.

Black moon cosmetics Liquid to mattes, “Libra”

A great nude in a brown shade, it has been one of my favourite nudes ever since I bought it. The smell reminds me of something sweet and edible, the texture is easy to work with, and the color lasts OK through dinner.

  • Consistency: 5
  • Color tone: 5
  • Smell: 4
  • Durability: 4
  • Moisturizing effect: 4

Black moon cosmetics Liquid to mattes, “Deranged”

A perfect, dark red that I mostly use in winter. All the same features as the “Libra”, with a slightly lower point on durability.

  • Consistency: 5
  • Color tone: 5
  • Smell: 4
  • Durability: 3
  • Moisturizing effect: 4

Ofra cosmetics

Being both vegan and cruelty free, I find this brand to be quite innovative and I like their style in general.

Ofra cosmetics Long lasting liquid lipstick, “Aries”

A great nude in a pink tone. It does make my lips feel a bit dry after a few hours, but apart from that I really like everything else about this lipstick. The smell is somewhat sweet and chocolate-like, and it lasts forever. It´s a bit thicker in consistency than Aromi´s lipsticks.

  • Consistency: 4
  • Color tone: 5
  • Smell: 4
  • Durability: 5
  • Moisturizing effect: 2

Kat von D

Kat von D made her whole makeup collection vegan a couple of years ago, and it has a great reputation.

Kat von D everlasting liquid lipstick, “Malice”

My first ever makeup product from this brand, and I really like it. This one is a bright, orange-red color with lots of pigmentation. It lasts forever, too. I´ve worn it when eating dinner and drinking red wine, and it was more or less still perfect when I got home. The smell is kind of neutral.

  • Consistency: 5
  • Color tone: 5
  • Smell: 3
  • Durability: 5
  • Moisturizing effect: 3

 

Worth noting is that my lips are quite cracked, naturally.

I will continue adding more reviews here after hand I add more liquid lipsticks to my collection.
